press and well functioning economy compared to the rest of africa. obviously sack still has big challenges with crime and hiv and continuing very high income inequali inequality. the legacy he achieved despite repression are really an inspiration people trying to bridge all sorts of gaps. it's an amazing contrast to the dysfunction in washington over drastically smaller differences. it seems like republicans and democrats have, you know, huge policy deals between them but they have basically similar views about what sort of governance the united states should have, tinkering around the margins how much it should tax and spend. so much lesser ability here than mandela and his opponents achieve. a narcissism, such a crisis in south africa it was necessary to come together and give big things up. in the united states they think they can get everything because the gap between what they want and their opponents want is so small. >> we're made to feel they are much larger. the white house, organizing thesis of this administration, i feel like obama is at his best when he's speaking ab

economy. it will be good for our families. [ applause ] number four, as i alluded to earlier, we still need targeted programs for the communities and workers that have been hit hardest by economic change in the great recession. these communities are no longer limited to the inner city. they're found in neighborhoods hammered by the housing crisis, manufacturing towns hit hard by years of plants packing up, land-locked rural areas where young folks oftentimes feel like they've got to leave just to find a job. they're communities that just aren't generating enough jobs anymore. so we put forward new plans to help these communities and their residents because we've watched cities like pittsburgh or my hometown of chicago revamp themselves. if we give more cities the tools to do it, not handouts but a hand up, cities like detroit can do it too. so in a few weeks, we'll announce the first of these promise zones, urban and rural communities where we'll support local efforts focused on a national goal. that is, a child's course in life should not be determined by the zip code he's born in but

, you're causing them to become part of this perpetual unemployed group in our economy. >> joining me today, "washington post" columnist jonathan capehart, former white house press secretary and founding partner off-almost said founding father -- founding father and partner of inside agency robert gibbs, congressional reporter for buzz feed and political reporter and white house correspondent at the "huffington post" sam stein. we talked a lot about the pizza versus the pizza box. after the gop autopsy, the republican conviction they didn't actually need to change the product they were selling, they just needed to change the marketing. it's unbelievable me, the whole 47% thing clearly has not made a dent. nowhere do you see that in a more pronounced fashion than republican talking points on unemployment. >> largely, if you ask most members of the gop, 47% to them wasn't a gaffe, it's a belief. i heard it in debates i had with people all of last year before the tape was uncovered. i do think, look, this is one of those things that the republicans will either learn this the easy way or

continues to wreak havoc on families, small businesses and economy. it's not just a broken website. this bill is fundamentally flawed. >> our republican colleagues have focused so much attention, in fact, obsessed in killing the affordable care act they failed to focus on real needs of americans. >> smashing the speed limit. investigators say derailed commuter train traveling three times the legal speed heading into that dangerous curve 82 miles an hour. still unknown was the crash that killed four passengers caused by mechanical failure or operator error. >> for the train to be going 82 miles an hour around that curve is just a

higher wages for the jobs that are really forming the core of the economy today. that's what we did in the manufacturing sector the beginning of this economy and it really built the american middle class. it's what we need to do now. manufacturing jobs have gone away. it's fast-food jobs, retail jobs, service sector forming the core of the u.s. economy. those are the jobs we need to raise wages for. >> jack brings up an important point, seven out of ten growth occupyings through 2020 are low-wage jobs. this the american job market. the president has supported this, we have a lot of democrats who have come out and supported thchl i think it is much harder, actually, for conservatives to dismiss the minimum wage in the way they dismiss other parts of the social safety net. this is not an entitlement program. there's economic stimulus. i think this puts conservatives in a tough position. >> it does put republicans in a tough position. majority of republicans think this is a good idea. the president talked beauty this yesterday. he's been talking about this for as long as he's been in p

the economy, okay at managing crime, not so great managing corruption. as eugene says, what he really stepped forward was his moral vision. he was a brilliant communicator. we expected that of obama. obama, in fact, has not been as president as brilliant a communicator as expected. he hasn't provided the same kind of moral vision in his speeches about health care, the economy -- >> recently. >> lately in touch with that. he's made pragmatic arguments more than this moral framework of an argument. i think maybe there's a lesson there for the white house from mandela. >> also need to think about what mandela was able to accomplish in the arc of history. it was years, very methodical -- even when they were in prison, they were planning for when they got out and what the government needed to look like. that was years and years and years. years and years of a lot of pressure coming from the outside. i actually think if we were going to have any kind of parallel to the united states, we should be asking ourselves what more could we do from the outside to create conditions. part of th
